Description Jan Iven 2012-04-08 13:57:58 UTC
When presented with a matrix that can't be inverted, MS .net Matrix.Invert() seems to silently ignore that error. Mono libgdiplus throws an exception.

See https://bugs.launchpad.net/purple-pen/+bug/580619, the program in question runs happily on Windows. Mono says:

System.ArgumentException: A null reference or invalid value was found [GDI+ status: InvalidParameter]
  at System.Drawing.GDIPlus.CheckStatus (Status status) [0x00000]
  at System.Drawing.Drawing2D.Matrix.Invert () [0x00000]

Patching  the program to not Invert() the matrix unless IsInvertible() removes the exception on Mono as well, but should not be required..

Seen with Ubuntu Oneiric packaged libgdiplus-2.10-2

The following code throws an ArgumentException on Windows: https://dotnetfiddle.net/R7ym4P

using System;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Drawing.Drawing2D;
using System.Diagnostics;
public class Program
	public static void Main()
		var matrix = new Matrix(123, 24, 82, 16, 47, 30);

I think this issue can be closed as both Windows and Mono have the same behaviour.
